When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

My NYC Art Exhibit at SVA

My studio is cluttered but my work is progressing. There is one week left until the SVA Summer residency exhibit. The three paintings featured in this image, will not be displayed at the opening on Thursday evening, August 6th. I successfully tried new materials amd created new images that addressed certain technical and aesthetic objectives, but not all of my work can be presented as a cohesive body of art. And more importantly, I have no room:) I outgrew my studio. Yikes!

So during the next several days, I will refine and complete a few works and prepare them for the show! It feels like crunch time prior to college finals!Not only are we expected to exhibit our work, we are encouraged to create an "environment" or installation of sorts, for our work. This week end will be intense I'm sure.

So if you are in the mood to see great art in NYC, stop by the School of Visual Arts on 8/6/09. I'll document the progress of my art space. It will be magical!
